30 Poems for Artists: Matan Fridman

Live Art, Poetry, Yleinen

In the inspiring artist residency of Ponderosa, Germany, I wrote one poem for each fellow artist, curator and worker at the residency. The poems were then performed at a Poet’s Reception on 2nd October 2014.
In Ponderosa, there was something missing if Matan was not around. He did his job by creating a warm spirit in the place. Thank you so much again, Matan!!

Dancing around the life and Ponderosa

you’re the driver and they all

wanna go to town, so they call

and you drive, –

OH MAN YOU DO

But I just wanna cook more tahini with you

30 Poems for Artists: Adi Brief

Yleinen

In the inspiring artist residency of Ponderosa, Germany, I wrote one poem for each fellow artist, curator and worker at the residency. The poems were then performed at a Poet’s Reception on 2nd October 2014.

This one was made for Adi Brief, a person who has worked hard during years to establish the beautiful residency of Ponderosa. She has seen the place being born, its buildings going through a total renovation, and the community around it evolve and develop. She takes good care of it all, including the garden, and during my stay, appeared as a comfort-bringing household fairy for all of the guests.

 

Workfully working, joking, lurking

You’ve got it all for a smooth ride

You’ve got your smiles and we llke

the way you commit without a vomit

and do know how dreams

really do come true.
